Below are samples of different plays I have written (or co-written). If you are interested in reading the entire play, please feel free to contact me.

The following three one act plays are part of the Two Men in a Room Anthology:

A years-long investigation has led a short-seller to publish an expose and tank the market on a company's stock. With the stock dive playing out in real-time, he takes an interview with a journalist. As the fallout of his actions fall into place, he realises that the innocuous journalist he is speaking with has far more personal reasons for taking an interest in his actions.

In the confines of a farmhouse in rural Ohio, Carl Duncan, the Senator for Ohio and a rising star in the Democratic Party, has returned to his roots to reveal a monumental decision. However, friendship and ambition are put to the test when the past reveals an ugliness that threatens to throw proceedings off track.

Reeling from the sexual abuse and death of his daughter by another man, a grieving father decides to enact his own act of redress in order to come to terms with his grief and anger.

Other Plays:

In a rural religious sect in America, a young girl falls foul to the abuse of a charismatic elder in the congregation. 10 years later she comes back to confront her father of his inaction and the fallout of her shunning from the community.

1817. Amelia Island, Florida. The soon-to-be state as in disarray and one small island off the Atlantic coast become home to six factions in as many months. THE FLAGMAKER explores the farcical turn of events that involved self-aggrandized kings, national agreements and a small town that was all at once six different "nationalities" and none at the same time.
